We offer pet screening advice, pet rental transaction coordination, and much more. End-to-end pet property management solutions for independent landlords. Some of the reasons that landlords allow tenants to keep pets in their rentals is because they love pets, or see benefits to their property like a broader pool of tenants, or reduced tenant turnover (because pet owners have fewer options). However, allowing pets on your property can pose risks, from additional property damage to pet-induced injuries. A pet agreement can reduce a landlord’s risks in a pet-friendly building. To protect yourself and your property, make sure you lease includes pet restrictions and rules, and clearly explain your policies to your tenants. You might also consider increasing the damage deposit or requiring a separate pet deposit and charge a monthly pet rental fee.
